Introduction to Radio Systems

Module code: EG3212

This module will teach you the theory of electromagnetic wave propagation and how to apply this to the design of radio communication systems, including designing to improve signal quality and selecting appropriate antennas to maximise radio communication performance. You'll also gain insight into the factors limiting performance, such as electromagnetic propagation artefacts.
